Jewish Woman, Muslim Man, Pray Together After Tragedy

In an act of unity, a Muslim man and Jewish woman prayed together in Manchester, England, following the horrific terrorist attack earlier this week.

Renee Rachel Black, a 93-year-old Jewish woman, and Sadiq Patel, a Muslim man, paid their respects at a memorial in Manchester that was set up to honor the 22 victims killed Monday night. ISIS claimed responsibility for the suicide bomb attack.

The attack took place near the end of American singer Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester.

"Renee's 93. Jewish lady. I'm a Muslim man," Sadiq said. "But at this moment in time, faith doesn't mean anything. We're in this together; we'll get through this together."

Black voiced a similar message.

"We try to bring people together and not matter about the color or creed or whatever you are," Black said. "We're all the same people. We bleed just like everybody else."
